Bradley Cooper Reportedly Has New, British Girlfriend

Yes, we know it’s unseemly to track the love life of Philly homeboy Bradley Cooper in such granular detail. Here’s the thinking:

• Cooper, a recent Oscar nominee, A-Lister, and all-around pretty boy, is the closest thing Philadelphia has to celebrity royalty at the moment. (Will Smith being kind of the Benedict-style semi-retired King of Philly Celebrities; or maybe Smith is the West Philly version of the Dowager Countess on Downton Abbey—still sharp, still funny, still not to be trifled with, but letting others have their turn at the helm. It’s possible to overthink that.)

• Which means that Cooper’s eventual soulmate could very well end up being … the Queen of Philly.

Right? (Listens for chirps.) No? Well screw it. Because we know you care. So: Perez Hilton is reporting that Cooper is now hooking up with British model Suki Waterhouse.

“Bradley has been texting Suki every day since they met. He wants her to come to Los Angeles and visit him; he’s intrigued by her and she’s very interested in him. Suki had so much fun with Bradley when he was in the UK and wants to hang out with him again in the States. They’ve penciled in a date for when she can come over and they can spend some time together. Bradley wanted to arrange something before he starts promoting The Hangover Part III, which will take up a lot of his time. Until then, they will just have to bide their time.”

See? She’s British? Of course she’ll be the queen.
